Re: Why is userbar.php loaded from the header in 1.2?
then your best bet is to load the parent and new default themes and tweak the default to suit your needs. But I admit to reading your older posts and either you’re faking it well by pasting in a bunch of code to make it look you you know a thing or two about programming, or you know more than you’re leading us to believe. Either way, I’m sure this makes sense to even a non-programmer like yourself:
Retrieve the name of the highest priority template file that exists.
Searches in the STYLESHEETPATH before TEMPLATEPATH so that themes which inherit from a parent theme can just overload one file.
